The secret to better holiday reading: don’t take too many books!

Holidays are a welcome chance to lose ourselves between the covers of a book, especially for those of us who struggle to find time to read amid the assorted tyrannies of daily life. So the book that ends up in your suitcase had better be a worthy companion.

Here are some of our favourites:

  1. The Sunburnt Queen by Hazel Crampton (Jacana, 2004)
  2.  The Caliban Shore by Stephen Taylor (Faber & Faber, 2004)
  3.  Shipwrecks and Salvage in South Africa by Malcom Turner (Struik, 1988)
  4. Footprints in Paradise A History of The Wild Coast Edition 2 – Clive Dennison
